I can only imagine and am not surprised to hear that, he thinks he's an expert on Bay Area weather too lol.

He loves to use temps taken at the SoMa pier as evidence of LA's balmy winter nights but will quickly dismiss it for when it comes to summer high temps.

Yes and he created a thread about LA's weather in 2050 with a note that scientists estimate temps in LA to increase by 5 degrees by that time. Brilliant, he found a way to pad LA's weather. I say this as an LA native...I don't get why he is bent on painting such a "rosy" picture on weather that already pretty damn nice.

Hey, LA native here, I voted for Miami. No question that Miami's winter weather is the best in the continental U.S. Unless someone prefers cold weather in which case neither LA or Miami would win.

I think he is insecure and wishes weather, especially on the coast, was warmer and balmier than it actually is. Just look at a previous post in the thread talking about all the 70 degree lows this past summer yet of course he didn't point out how much warmer than normal the ocean and temps were. I love the weather in coastal SoCal but there were times I wished it was warmer both on land and in the ocean, it was still incredibly comfortable though. But I don't try to pretend it's something it's not. He's probably salivating at the thought of the coast being 5 degrees warmer on average and can't wait for 2050 to roll around LOL.

Yeah, South Floridas year round warmth and humidity is often used as a criticism for Floridas weather. The fact that a LA poster is trying to make coastal CA seem like some balmy ball of warmth in the winter is quite strange and obsessive. Wait til' the summer time when someone makes an LA vs Miami summer weather thread. I'm sure he'll present coastal LA as a windy, cool, natural AC.

If I had to choose between the two for a winter beach vacation, Miami would obviously win, mainly for the warmer daytime highs, warmer nighttime lows and warmer water temperature. Does anyone really go to LA in the winter for a beach vacation?
If Coconut Palms can flourish, then the climate is ideal!

It's not all LA/SoCal posters doing this. In fact, most people voting for LA have never been there and live outside of California. Then there is LA-Mex, who we already know is ridiculous. Most CA posters agree that Miami has better winter weather.

Winter weather on the other hand isn't as lopsided as you would think considering LA has microclimates that aren't too different with winters being low 70s/upper 40s.
We already all know that you're lying about LA's weather--just admit already that 50sF are above the average low temp, and LA averages 60sF as high temps in winter! We ALL know this!!

Besides, even if it DID see low 70sF as a winter high, Miami still defeats LA for winter weather simply because, outside of a few cold days, Miami sees warmer nighttime, daytime, and ocean temperatures than Los Angeles. Thus, making it a better place in winter to experience warm weather. The microclimates do not matter--for winter warmth, Miami easily wins and it ain't a contest.

Los Angeles because it's cooler and less rain. Miami is more comfortably warm, but I like winters to be cooler.
